Conservative columnist Ann Coulter on Tuesday called the renewed national debate over the Confederate flag “completely moronic” and said it does nothing to address legitimate struggles faced by black Americans.

Appearing on C-SPAN to promote her new book “Adios, America!” Ms. Coulter was asked her views on the Confederate flag debate, spurred by the fatal shootings of nine black people by a white gunman last week at a Charleston, South Carolina, church.

“I think it’s completely moronic,” Ms. Coulter said, Mediaite reported. “This is an awful, awful thing that happened in Charleston. Luckily, it’s quite rare.”

“But to jump on this and go back to a litany of liberal talking points that make Republicans look bad, how about banning the Democratic Party?” she asked. “They were the ones who were on the Confederate side of the Civil War. They were the ones who supported segregation for 100 years.”

“If we want to do something nice for black people, how about ending immigration, which is dumping millions of low-wage workers on the country, taking jobs from African-Americans, as innumerable studies have shown,” Ms. Coulter said.
